A few years ago, use to have an annual pilgrimage at the end of the season. Freezing nights, most places had or were closing for the season, surly horse and carriage drivers.Expensive entertainment. What did I see in all that, when I could have spent the same money for warmer and more friendlier places ?.
I went to Blackpool, with family from Oldham, last year. I couldn't believe how tatty, seedy and run down the place is. Even the premises used in the BBC series "Blackpool" looked sad with part of the sign, over the front of the building, missing. I've no wish to go back, no "super casino" is going to drag me all the way from South Somerset.
Mr Mistoffelees-- According to a recent television programme, Blackpool is having a £65 million pound facelift. And places like the Metropole are spending a further £5/6 million of refurbishments.You might even change your mind ;o)
